It's time to master walking foot quilting!
If you've been wanting to learn how to machine quilt on your home machine, but struggling to master free motion quilting, walking foot quilting will be right up your alley.
Walking foot quilting uses the feed dogs on your machine to guide the quilt forward evenly. Using this foot, you can quilt beautiful designs with evenly spaced lines and even better - consistent stitches throughout your quilt just by letting your walking foot do it's job.
In the book, Leah will teach you how to set up your machine properly and position the quilt so you can quilt easily on your home machine. Beautiful full color photos showcase the process of quilting the actual quilts in the book so you can see what it will realistically look like on your machine.
But isn't walking foot quilting boring? It's just straight lines...
That might have been what your grandma used her walking foot for, but in this book you'll learn how to quilt so much more than just straight lines. Leah has created seven beautiful quilt projects, including a stunning wholecloth quilt, to prove you can create amazing quilts with walking foot style quilting.
Even better, you'll learn how to use designs in creative ways on your quilts based on the time and energy you have for the project.
But what about videos? Do you need to SEE it to stitch it?
I completely understand! I shared detailed quilting tutorials for three quilts from Explore Walking Foot Quilting with Leah Day.
You can work along with us as we build skills and advance, or you can skip ahead and create the quilts from the book as you'd like.
Special Note from Leah Day: I began this book in 2015 after realizing I'd never really given walking foot quilting a chance. After having spent years digging deep into free motion quilting and sharing over a thousand videos online, I knew free motion quilting was a challenge for many quilters to master.
Getting into walking foot quilting was a terrific adventure and I tried to approach it in a new way and see if some of my free motion designs would work with a walking foot. The great news is many fun, beautiful designs transferred over perfectly and are much easier to quilt with even spacing and consistent stitches with walking foot style quilting.
In fact, some quilting designs like Super Spiral are best quilted with a walking foot! If you'd like to send the world a signal that your quilts are made by you, on the home machine you're quilting on right now, walking foot quilting is definitely for you.
I hope you're ready to jump in and have a wonderful adventure with me. Order your book today and let's begin exploring walking foot quilting together!
I have read through the new book quickly, and I must say I am really impressed. There is a huge amount of information, lots of basic instruction which obviously applies for all quilting but is so good to repeat and remember to apply, and really lovely patterns. I can already see suggestions on how to fix my biggest problem so far (little puckers when horizontal lines meet vertical ones) and I am really keen to get started. I am off to find fabric - can hardly wait. Very, very well done, Leah - a huge job showing real care and dedication, and presented beautifully and clearly. - Judith D
I received the book yesterday and it is BEAUTIFUL! So much work went into this book that I can hardly believe the price could be so reasonable. All the tips, photos, quilts are so helpful. I can't wait to 'give it a test run.' I have done plenty of walking foot quilting, but I can see you have given us volumes to learn. I especially love the mosaic quilt that gives us a chance to practice the patterns on a smaller scale. I have some 10 inch squares that will do nicely for this. And it's not just practice, we will have a quilt when we are done. Great for baby or lap quilts, each block do-able in small increments of time. Thanks again for all your hard work and inspiration. - Jenedel W.
